The Youth Engagement Program (YEP) has a dual focus: supporting young people struggling to stay at school, and supporting existing early school leavers to make a successful transition to other training or education.

Helping Young People Address Disengagement From School

A yourtown team of professionals and volunteer mentors work together to understand the issues in your early disengagement from school.

They’ll help you address those issues and either re-enrol in school or begin the transition to work.
